A SOMERSET animal charity is hoping shoppers can help to feed the vulnerable animal they care for after setting up a new food donation bin at a Weston supermarket.

East Huntspill-based Secret World set up the bin at the Asda supermarket in Phillips Road, and volunteers Janet and John Vinnicombe brought along a barn owl called Shadow and two hedgehogs to launch the new bin.

Staff at the centre are hoping that generous shoppers will donate tins of pet food and other items such as kitchen roll to help feed and look after the animals brought into their care.

Secret World fund-raiser Debbie O’Keefe said: “After food supplies were at an all time low this is one way customers can help our charity, we are also currently seeking volunteers to run either the Bristol 10k or the Bristol half marathon on our behalf.”
